WVC 61-8-9a §61-8-9a. Child abuse; education; curriculum.
The Legislature finds the best way to avoid child abuse in West Virginia is to educate our young people on the skills of parenting; therefore, the Legislature directs the commissioner of the department of health, the state superintendent of schools and the commissioner of the department of human services to develop a curriculum to be taught in each of the secondary grades; such curriculum shall include, but not be limited to, discipline, handling stresses of raising children, and the health care needs of children. Such curriculum shall start no later than the 1990-1991 school year.

Note: WV Code updated with legislation passed through the 2013 1st Special Session
